2015 was a good year in the grand scheme of things. through the past year, i have learned a lot about myself and have a better grasp of what i want to attain and where i want to go. i realized my true ambitious self of not wanting to remain at the same level time after time, year after year. there was definitely not as much action as i would like in terms of taekwondo competitions, but sometimes fate and timing has a lot to do with it. continuing to be involved in the dodgeball community not only in vancouver, but expanded my team to richmond. there’s no surprise i remain injury-proned; but the frequency as well as the ability to heal myself has gotten progressively better. i cannot express how blessed i am to have met so many supportive people in my life that always lends a hand or provides motivational words so i can stay on track even when times get tough

here’s to welcoming 2016 with open arms with set goals and big ambitions to take everything to the next level. let’s write the next 365 days and make it a year to remember.

  • stay as injury-free as possible
  • eat clean, sleep earlier, train regularly
  • take on big challenges even if i am scared, that’s the only way to get to the next level
  • be more confident and less self-doubting
  • love myself, my family and my friends just the way we are
  • learn a new sport
  • pick up snowboarding
  • learn to code, write my website
  • complete obstacle courses
  • travel the world

i am ready to take on all these challenges. find my strong. it’s now or never

beginning a two day sport poomsae seminar taught by a grandmaster and member of usa poomsae team. good first day of the seminar, finally taekwondo bc is trying to catch up in the world of poomsae. i hope i will be involved in the ride towards better competition days to put taekwondo bc on the national radar. westcoast must take a stand, can’t let the east coast take all the glory

day 458 – master cup

it feels different going to master cup as a coach instead of a competitor. i am not done competing yet but i have lost interest in competing at this provincial competition year after year. this is really the time for my team to travel to out of town events and get more exposure rather than competing in the same circle at the same level. having success at this level just isn’t giving us the satisfaction like it used to. this is the only way for us to grow and get to higher ground
